of his second term. you just mentioned it again. the republican senator marco rubio has been taking the lead and jay carney, the white house press secretary had positive words about his proposals this week. but marco rubio said this week on bill owe rile we'll show the president hasn't reached out. take a look. >> they never talked to us about it and the truth is the way our republic is designed the president can design whether to sign or not. >> but you're a leader. shouldn't the president be conferring with leaders in the house and senate? >> well, we'll be more than happy to talk to him and explain my principles. >> he hasn't called. >> no. >> why not? >> there's going to be a debate and process over immigration reform and i think during that process, i think there will be discussions we, the president's administration have with members of congress and congress among themselves, but what's clear is the stars are aligned for immigration reform. by the way, it needs to be real immigration reform. >> but aren't you going to team up with marco rubio to get it done? >> there will be a
anticipated, his critics started slamming proposals. the republican senator marco rubio saying nothing the president is proposing would have stopped the massacre at sandy hook. he is targeting the rights of law-abiding citizens instead of addressing the real underlying causes of such violence. add this tote pot. the congressman from kansas said taking away the rights and abilities of law-abiding citizens to defend themselves is another display of the administration's consolidation of power. joining me now from connecticut is john larson. thank you so much for joining me, sir. let me get your initial reaction to what you heard from the president. is it what you were hoping for? >> absolutely. i was fortunate to fly up from the president from d.c. to newtown when he gave his address. i can you to his marrow he was impacted by this and said it was the worst day of his presidency and he was resolved to do something about it and he has. i think the nation is behind this president and it is different now. i think the road ahead may be difficult, legislators shouldn't be afraid to stand in th
ammunition magazines 26 oppose. this morning, republican senator marco rubio positioning himself to run for president in 2016 told a lie on fox and friends actually had a follow up question. >> the things that they are putting forward would prevent nothing to prevent what happened in connecticut. >> didn't adam lanz sa have a military style assault weapon? >> the gun you used was the most common gun in america and wasn't his, it was his mother's. >> today joe scarboro offered this warning. >> they better be careful. they have wandered in and followed the nra who has made horrible pr mistakes. republicans better be careful and think twice before they make their next move. >> alex wagner you heard me ask for a freeze frame of marco rubio's face when he got a challenge from a friend. and on a totally legitimate issue. >> i think it is ridiculous that members of our elect, members of our congress are hiding behind this theory that we haven't defined what an assault weapon is. a bush master weapon is an assault weapon. people in the military say those are the kinds of guns we use when we are
you heard me ask for a freeze frame of marco rubio's face when he got a challenge from a friend. and on a totally legitimate issue. >> i think it is ridiculous that members of our elect, members of our congress are hiding behind this theory that we haven't defined what an assault weapon is. a bush master weapon is an assault weapon. people in the military say those are the kinds of guns we use when we are fighting wars. >> i think it was interesting that david keeb de n defends it saying it has the ability to fire off a lot of rounds quicklism so it would be in convenient to ban it. can you imagine how long it would take to have to change magazine clips? >> my mission for these segments that we are doing is to get one truth straight in each segment. let's get it straight that what rubio said is wrong. that what the president is proposing would have changed the outcome, yes the crazy kid would have stolen his mother's gun but his mother would have not been able to obtain the gun and we would not have had 26 tragedies inside that school. he would not have been able to kill that ma
issing problematic for a couple of reasons, but primarily because it doesn't work. >> senator marco rubio's instant opposition is not about raising taxes on the wealthy, like last year. nor is it about proposing to raise the tax cuts. this time the issue is gun safety, including universal background checks supported by nearly nine out of ten americans. the president, once again, is taking his message to the people. as did he with _#$40. >> i promise you the american people, your voices, made a difference on this debate zoosh as he did with _#my2k. >> if there's one thing that i have learned, when the american people speak loudly enough, lo and behold, congress listens. >> yesterday the white house launched _#now is the time. >> this will not happen unless the american people demand it. >> the president has a new website explaining the proposed laws. he penned an op ed in the connecticut post today, and he is planning to hit the road to sell his plan with speeches around the country. as the white house tries to engage the public, senate majority leader harry reid will try to engage the sen
, the bail-out and the assault on the constitution, second amendment. marco rubio weighed in last night. >> i think the president and he doesn't have the guts to admit it, not a believer in the second amendment. that's what i'm saying. the second amendment is in the constitution. it at no time write the constitution. neither did you and neither did he. if he doesn't want the second amendment in the constitution or reform it, have the guts to admit that. >> eric: robert, kick it off. >> bob: first, you are open and the tease that kimberly read -- >> kimberly: was magnificent. >> bob: was the most outrageous shot i have ever seen. our executive producer must have written it. >> eric: i wrote it. >> bob: you are so right you make attila the hun look like a moderate. >> eric: obamacare, upheld in the courts, shredded the constitution -- >> bob: i think that is a reach. >> eric: bail-out and then the second amendment. >> bob: marco rubio, i spent time with him and i kind of liked him. now he is running for president and the right wing rubio coming out. kilnot true. >> bob: it is true. he has a mea
. then marco rubio said nothing the president is proposing would have--stopping such violence. >> cenk: this is the thing that is driving me craze. none of this would have stopped sandy hook. you know what would have stopped sandy hook? if we had much tougher gun control. oh he's not doing enough so it wouldn't have stopped sandy hook. great, let's do more. >> rubio is saying he's not doing things to attack the underlying problems that there are. he is he's talking about not just gun control but mental health and executives orders of putting todd jones at the head of the atf. >> i have to agree with michael here. you look at the proposals and it's very comprehensive. he does target a large variety of issues. aside from gun control and i like that. anyone who is reasonable and logical could not look at obama's proposals and say it goes too far. they are common sense. we should have more back round checks and get rid of the gun show loopholes. i don't understand why they would fight against that. >> cenk: because they represent the gun manufacturers and they want to make more money. ther
plan of marco rubio when the party is in need of support of the latino community and one of those things we thought you should know. >>> plus, here's the question -- should the justice department sue lance armstrong to get back sponsorship money? we are talking nearly $100 million. [ male announcer ] ahh... retirement. sit back, relax, pull out the paper and...what!!?? an article that says a typical family pays $155,000 in "wall street" fees on their 401(k)s? seriously? seriously. you don't believe it? search it, "401k 155k." then go to e-trade. and roll over your old 401(k)s to a new e-trade retirement account. we have every type of retirement account. none of them charge annual fees, and all of them offer low cost investments. why? because we're not your typical wall street firm, that's why. so you keep more of your money. e-trade. less for us. more for you. >>> nate said, right after ben died, he said -- this is tough, but he said, you promised you would protect us. >> yeah. >> and i did promise them this. >> sure. >> you know? >> yeah. >> yeah. >> so, what do i say to him? i c
. >> i think they can go a long time. >> great. >> marco rubio, who is emerging as sort of a -- i guess what republicans would like to see is a moderate standard bearer for the party, the face of the future just came out with a statement and says the president is abusing his power in reaction to the comments he made. >> abusing his power how? >> this is also an old gop playbook, by the way, abuse of power and impeachment, right? >> i want to know how much this argument and the lines are established within the republican party and democratic party, how much that informs the republicans going forward. if they can't get anything done in the wake of newtown, how optimistic are we they are going to get anything done on immigration, let alone, you know, energy reform? >> i think they know there is a -- an image problem and an identity crisis happening. but that's absolutely right. it's not just about this, it's everything after this. this debate is going to be long and drawn out. this is just the start. we're going to move on very soon to talk about the debt ceiling, and it's going to be -- w
. >> and, in fact, marco rubio, chuck, has put out a statement saying that nothing the president is proposing would have stopped the massacre at sandy hook. president obama is targeting the rights of law-abiding citizens instead of what caused the violence. that is a very strong response from someone who's talked about as a 2016 potential candidate. >> and he also accused the president of abusing his executive power in the 23 actions. when you read the 23 actions, frankly, these are very weak directives. there's not much more the white house could do. they've got a whole bunch of things out there, but to call it an overreach is a big, big stretch there. but you're right, andrea, that's presidential politics. the most important responses, though, on this front have come from the two people in charge of putting legislation on the floor of the house and the senate. and speaker boehner's spokesperson said we'll be happy to look at any proposals that pass the senate. well, what did harry reid say last weekend about voting on any bills having to do with gun legislation? they are not go
, marco rubio, rand paul, ted cruz are right out there front in opposing president obama on gun safety. so what happened? why is the gop, the party of guns over people? our guests are congresswoman carolyn mccarthy, a democrat of new york, and cynthia tucker, a pulitzer prize winning columnist. thank you both for joining us. you have been in this fight for so long, congresswoman mccarthy. i have to ask you, is there something out there in the water that's changed or are we confronting the old power of the nra? >> well, certainly we are confronting them. we'll always be able to confront them, but this time is different, and i think that the american people are realizing on how radical they actually are. you know, when you see the polls in most people in america support on what we're trying to do, even nra members, so that this time is different. i think it's a combination of the gun violence that we have seen over the last couple years, but what happened in connecticut, that went over the top. we had a hearing yesterday afternoon, and i have to tell you, victims that i have been working wit
of rand paul and marco rubio into the obscene disrespect we've seen for our president from day one of his first term. this is the same kind of disrespect we have seen time and time and time again. now you have rand paul and marco rubio trying to make tougher cases because they're thinking to 2016. with regard to the south specifically though, i think there's a slightly other reason, and my parents are both southerners i should clarify. jimmy likes to count me as a southerner because of that, but i have some interesting distinguishing roots in the south. but, you know, here is part of it. this goes back to my time at the dnc and something chairman howard dean used to talk about. part of the problem is democrats after, you know, there was the civil rights movement, democrats basically gave up on the south, and we resorted to an 18-state strategy in our presidential elections and we don't make our case in the south. so what people in a lot of these southern, and particularly in red states, end up hearing is the only the one side bashing democrats. we don't stand up and make our case. i will
this for what it is. both marco rubio and rand paul are looking at 2016. so they are speaking about the president with the same kind of disrespectful receiptrhetoric t we've been hearing from the tea party darlings for quite some time. so clearly part of their motivation is looking ahead for their own political interest because there's not a lot of substance here to back up what they're saying. >> why would a united states senator from florida, rubio, question whether the president has guts? after what this president has done and the tough calls that he has had to make. i can't think of another word. is it childish? >> it is childish. particularly -- i mean, what gutsy thing has marco rubio done? let's see. he proposed some immigration reform ideas that are pretty much like the president's. so i don't think we've got an original idea out of him. i don't think we've gotten a bold idea out of him. it doesn't take a lot to go on fox news and say that the president doesn't -- i mean, come on, right? >> okay. the question to you, eugene robinson. is this all dangerous? >> well, it is dan
themselves for an immigration debate marco rubio focused intently on the year 2016 and it has been pushing the outlines of an imgraugs reform plan. while rubio may be making headway outside washington, he has yet to win over the raucus house caucus where the water is, indeed, choppy. the newly appointed chairman of the house immigration subcommittee is south carolina republican trey gowdy, a fast and furious devoteee who co-sponsored a bill entitled the prohibiting back door amnesty act, supported arizona's highly controversial immigration law, and received an a-minus rating from numbers usa, a group dedicated to reducing the number of immigrants entering the united states. joining the panel now is the new yorker's nick baumgartem. i read the names of those scintillating sim posa, and i wonder as we talk about the gop 2.0 or 7.0 or whatever it rags you choose to believe this is, are you convinced that this is anything more than rhetoric? i really don't mean to be baiting the witness. do you believe that the gop wants to change, can change, will change? >> it really does sound like some cro
were trying to keep us from voting. >> now, of course marco rubio, a senator from florida took issue with it. do you see any other republicans coming out, condemning these kinds of laws like powell just talked about? >> well, listen, no one has the kind of strength of conviction that general powell does when it comes to critiquing the republican party. part of that is because he's not really in politics the way some of these folk are. but there to be a reckoning in the republican party. they have to deal with everything he has laid out here, because the demographics are the destiny for the party. unless they want to become obsolete, they have to pay attention to the issues colin powell laid out for them on "meet the press" yesterday. >> it doesn't sound like you think the republicans are going to take any of his advice. >> there is no suggestion that they will, ed. the proof will be in the pudding. either they will or they won't. but, again, a lot of folk have been talking about these things for a long time. you hope coming from a republican general as respected as general powell wil
voices on the right. senator marco rubio saying the president is abusing his power. the governor of mississippi claiming the president is anti-constitutional and vowing to pass a state law overriding the white house. rush limbaugh, accusing the president of using kids as human shields. but the lowest of the low was that video put out by the nra. dragging the president's children into the debate. >> are the president's kids more important than yours? and why is he skeptble about putting armed security in our schools when his kids are prikted by armed guards at their school? >> the nra really can't understand why the president's children received protection? the white house called that video repugnant and cowardly. the nra just doesn't understand how the tragedy at sandy hook changed america. today, on capital hill, the school superintendent moved people to tears as she talked about the terrible moments after the shooting. >> the true horror came as tharnts came running to their children. we began to realize we didn't have enough children. there were parents without children. >> pa
immigration? what would you like to see happen? marco rubio on the republican side has already laid out his plan. what's your reaction to what rubio is propose and what you want to see come out of the white house? >>. >> he loud a path to citizenship for dreamers, and i think that's essential. andrea, i think the main debate will be about legalization and specifically how do you legalize folks. you can have everything from guest and residenty, and that will be the debate in congress in the coming year. >> coming up, are you also going to be faced almost immediately with the whole crisis over the debt ceiling. not house has been holding really firm. what do you think about coming into this partisan divide coming up here in congress? >> well, i mean, i hope to be part of a freshman class and a group of folks in congress who can take care of the finances and systems without creating more self-inflicted wounds. we know that last time we went through this it hurt the stock market nationally. it hurt our bond ratings. we have to create something that doesn't create this self-inflicted wound every
, senator bilbo. marco rubio last night accused the president of not believing in the second amendment. here is a guy clearly running for president. let's take a look. >> i actually think the president, and he just doesn't have the guts to admit it, isn't a believer in the second amendment. the second amendment is in the constitution. i didn't write the constitution. neither did you, neither did he. if he doesn't want the second amendment to be in the constitution or if he wants to reform the second amendment, have the guts to admit that. >> congresswoman mccarthy, what's this -- where is this talk coming from, this street corner lingo, guts, guys getting together, guts, the president has the guts. a little respect might be in order for the president of the united states from this guy, talking about a guy not having guts. it's street corner talk from rubio. your thoughts. we're talking about guns here. >> we're talking about guns here, yes, but we all swear to uphold the constitution. i believe in upholding the constitution. the supreme court already came out that a person has a right to own
but of course violence control. and marco rubio has been weighing in on the government's proposals. >> what they proposed today will not affect anything that has happened in any of those places. >> i'm wondering if this is a bit of a problem, chip, as some other issues have been for republicans in the past that you have to talk like that if you want to get the nomination. it's going to be a little bit more difficult when you get to the general election. >> they're pretty tough words no question. right now like we said, we are a long way away from that. but there's another way, i think we can talk about the issues, talk about what we would do, and not be negative. i this that's the pathway to take. >> so you think chris christie is being smarter on this? >> i think they have all got to take their own path, but talk about what we believe and why we're standing up for our second amendment rights. >> we talked a little bit about hillary clinton, you also have joe biden, he's been ahead of this issue for a long time and a pers -- and senator gill brand, used to talk about how she had a gun under
tim scott on the panel or something. >> sure. if he wants to be on the panel. or how about marco rubio? or how about senator cruz from texas? the idea that you're going to have three white men come up with strategies to appeal to people of color and women to help save the republican party, i repeat what i said before, it's bananas. >> okay. that's the second bananas. krystal, there are some other details that are leaking out about their itinerary and perhaps i should say oozing out. for instance, patrick doyle, the ceo of dominos pizza is giving a presentation on quote, turning it around. that sounds apt for this audience. >> that's a smart booking. that makes sense. >> you think he makes sense? >> having panels about how to talk to minorities and women led by white men is not the best turnaround. one thing that has been amazing coming out of the republican party is rather than look at the things they've been saying and promoting, they're still going down the path of how can we rig the electoral process to our benefit with reince priebus and others. >> that's what they're going to be t
marco rubio. >> by the own admission of the white house, what they have proposed to do would do nothing to have prevented what happened in connecticut or colorado before that or any of these other places where this has occurred. i actually think the president and doesn't have the guts to admit it, is not a believer in the second amendment. >> the white house is also up against the nra, which is raising money. e-mailing support, to upgrade their membership to prepare for, quote, the fight of the century. barack obama, joe biden and their gun ban allies in it congress only want to blame you, vilify you, bully you and strip you of your second amendment freedoms. nra president david keen made these slippery slope argument that has become all too familiar from them. this morning on the "today" show. >> you get into the sort of bidding match. they say we shouldn't have a 30-round magazine or 20-round. the president says let's have a ten. the governor of new york says well, i can top that, we'll have a seven-round magazine. >> but did the nra go too far by invoking president obama's daughters,
for the same thing. >> marco rubio was quoted saying nothing that the president is proposing would have stopped the massacre at sandy hook. do you agree? >> that's probably true. a woman had guns, i don't know if she went through a background check, but her son certainly didn't. he took his mother pf's guns an killed people. that doesn't mean having fewer guns around isn't a bad idea. there are people who run through traffic lights, does that mean we should get rid of traffic lights? no, in macrosense, they work. if you have fruer guns, things are better. in new york state, we have strong gun laws. we have fewer guns on the streets. our murder rate is one of the lowest murder rates of any big city. >> newt gingrich brought this up on the show the other day. you look at a city like chicago that has tough gun legislation and a high murder rate. >> new york has tough gun legislation and a low murder rate. it's not a panacea for everything. you have to have a good police department, have it well led, diversified, deploy it where the problems are, aggressive with the kids who are most likely to carr
was running and those lunatic republicans were saying that if they put marco rubio with them they would get the hispanic vote. >> stephanie: yeah, because you are easily tricked. you will be like, oh he is brown-skinned like me. [♪ magic wand ♪] >> caller: it would be the same thing as if romney would need the african american votes and he would choose allen west. >> stephanie: exactly. as it turns out, hispanics not easily tricked. >> that's right. and it's not like they are one organism. >> exactly. >> stephanie: okay. terry in indiana. hi, terry. >> caller: yes. >> stephanie: yes, go ahead. >> caller: i enjoy your show to begin with and whatever happens with current tv i hope you guys land on your feet, i really like your show. >> we like our show too. [ laughter ] >> caller: yeah. as far as the gun debate. i think everything on the table that is being proposed, and i'm talking about the high-capacity clips and the background checks and the assault rifle, i think most gun owners can agree with all of that but i think joe biden at the end of that needs to say, and t
george. charles: you mention the second amendment. i want to play a clip from senator marco rubio and get your reaction. >> i think the president doesn't have the guts to admit it, does not believe in the second amendment although he said he is. these guys, the second amendment is in the constitution. i didn't write the constitution and needed to you. if he doesn't want the second amendment to be in the constitution or a few wants to reform the second amendment have the guts to admit that. judge napolitano: senator rubio is right. in an unguarded moment when he was senator obama heat mock religion and people who claimed done for security. that is an indication of his feelings about them. when it comes to a tradition the city of chicago which was so anti second amendment the supreme court of the united states, a two majority opinions to tell chicago you can't stop people from purchasing and keeping arms in their home. the president comes from that tradition and senator rubio is correct. charles: let's check the markets. last time we checked the dow was up 32 points and starting to gain fra
that in the elections. i mean, it was pretty clear. >> yeah, well, in speaking of elections marco rubio senator from florida is going to be a pivotal figure in any discussion about immigration in this country. "the washington post" editorial board writes about senator rubio's efforts at immigration reform saying, quote, the center piece of mr. rubio's plan, a pathway to citizenship with stages, is new for him. as a candidate for the senate in 2010, he denounced amnesty for immigrants without papers. his position now labels not with standing represents a shift. it also requires guts. mr. rubio one of just three hispanics in the senate has made clear he is willing to lead. the question in the coming months is whether his party's main stream in congress, in state capitals, can be coaxed toward moderation. what does senator rubio do about his colleagues over in the house of representatives? >> well, he is a key player and he is willing to work in coalition. i mean, right now in washington that is the key issue. are you willing to get over that one single threshold of working in coalition? do you think t
of the year you could see a deal coming together. you have to watch marco rubio. if he comes out to an eventual pathway to citizenship, and you're going to go through a whole bunch of obstacles, payments, but if he ultimately supports is, you can get a deal. >> it's in his initial plan. >> what about five years ago though? george w. bush the president of the united states supported immigration reform and he got absolutely rolled by republicans in the house and the senate. marco rubio doesn't have the power to make a republican from iowa support this. >> he might. >> no, he doesn't. >> he's one of the few republicans who's conservative enough he can get people to change their habits. if you don't, the numbers will kill them. you can't leave the fastest growing group in america in perpetuity. texas politics are in the different today. four years, eight years, they're radically different. if you look at the growth of hispanic in texas, you have the five largest cities. they're all moving to the middle largely because you have growing minority populations. the cou
